Abstract

This paper presents a study of the charged particle multiplicity distributions for thee+e annihilation. It is shown that the KNO-G scaling, the concept which turned out to be very successful in thepp collisions, is also valid for thee+e, data. Using this concept the predictions for the multiplicity distributions at LEP are given. The possible explanation of the scaling origin is postulated. It seems that the proposed mechanism, namely the Polyakov scale invariant branching, is responsible for the scaling observed in the data. It is worth to emphasize that the same mechanism was proposed to explain the intermittent behaviour of a multiparticle final state.
